Aware of the challenges concerning global warming, the green economy is a priority in Wallonia as much from an economic as an environmental point of view.
Thus, the public authorities grant different types of aids to companies that invest in favour of the environment.
Also, Wallonia has companies, know-how and resources that allow it to seize the opportunity to make greentech a vehicle for growth.
MEASURES IN FAVOUR OF THE ENVIRONMENT AND ENERGY
Belgium and Wallonia provide incentives for investments that favour the environment and are focused on research and development. For investment projects located specifically in geographic areas eligible for European structural funds, additional European incentives may be added to the purely regional incentives.
